Hey, I made a few cards that would hold gift cards or money and I used this Bo Bunny paper line from last year. I love it. Of course it is blue, but a different blue than this year's line. I inked the edges and then wound some burgundy thread around the mat. I adhered it to the card base and then added this digi image that I used copies on to make sure the blues matched on the birds. I layered it up using some spellbinders dies. I added this wonderful flower/silver brad. I used some Zing embossing powder and made this sentiment. It really pops off of the black card stock.
For the inside I sewed on some matching patterned paper to the mat of page 2. I added an embossed sentiment and then added this spellbinders die cut as a mat for a place to write a TO/FROM. I added some stamps to add some interest to the mat and a sticker to the corner. On page 3, I simple added the mat and a pocket to the bottom, using a punch by Martha Stewart. Love it!
